Call the Midwife
A Memoir of Birth, Joy, and Hard TimesDownloadable Audiobook - 2012
At the age of twenty-two, Jennifer Worth leaves her comfortable home to move into a convent and become a midwife in post war London's East End slums. The colorful characters she meets while delivering babies all over London -- from the plucky, warm-hearted nuns with whom she lives to the woman with twenty-four children who can't speak English to the prostitutes and dockers of the city's seedier side -- illuminate a fascinating time in history.
